    Baylor/ISU game opens as a pick 'em (0 point favorites)

    We're favored by 0, but so are they.

    Not even Vegas has any idea what's going to happen. I'm interested to see how this line moves during the week.

    I know, getting ahead of ourselves, but you think there is a chance that WVU would be a underdog at ISU considering their slide?

    I'm more interested in what the over/under will be. I'm beginning to wonder if they can set Baylor's o/u high enough.

    If we don't win this and win it comfortably, the wheels have come off for this year.

    Early betting has moved the line to ISU -2. We are favored now.

    Not surprised both teams are inconsistent right now. We will bounce back not sure when.

    Crazy that the line's moved toward us. This would be just the 2nd game that we've been favored in all season.

    Here's an interesting question... when's the last time ISU was favored in a conference game that wasn't vs. Kansas?

    2010 last game vs Colorado?

    You hope not? Why would you possibly hope not? ISU being favored over WVU would mean we had won 2-3 of our next four games and they had lost 2-3 of their next four games. Why wouldn't you want that?

    If Baylor's offense comes to play, well, I'm not liking the good guy's chances.

    I don't see this going well, being favored in a conference game against non-mythical animals is highly uncharted territory.

    We're 3-3-1 against the spread so far this year. Remember last week when nobody could figure out why OSU was a two touchdown favorite? The people putting money on the line tend to know what's up. The smart money putting money down on the opening line is favoring Iowa State. That makes me feel better about our chances.

    Thats the tough one to judge. I think it'll probably be relatively low (50) for Baylor.

    Personally I expect the line to move towards Baylor and go off around 2 or 3 for them.


    I am terrified if Lache Seastrunk gets lots of carries. Just our luck he'll finally get a big role against us after Briles punished him for twittering about no PT. Briles finally gave him some touches at the end of the Texas game and he looks simply awesome he's really stocky and strong for such a burner...and Michael Turner at No Ill is exactly who he reminds me of. He is much better than Salubi.
